However, TV broadcasting made a bond between a role and a particular actor. Television audiences, unlike theater audiences, found it more difficult to suspend their disbelief in this respect. This was likely because reruns existed which would forever tie the appearance of a character to the actor that played them. While a play or even a series of plays could have the characters played by different actors, television could not because the original would still be around in the old shows.

Compare TheNthDoctor, which is the trope for cases where character's new voice and appearance ''are'' explained in-universe. If there's a TimeSkip and most of the cast remains the same then it can be a TimeShiftedActor if the age difference justifies the particular change. For long-term cast attrition in general, see LongRunnerCastTurnover.

This trope is when a new actor is brought on to play the same character as a previous actor who has left the series, with no explanation for the switch given to the audience. [[TropeNamers Named]] for the famous Darrin swap case: Dick York to Dick Sargent, on ''Series/{{Bewitched}}''.

This often is the case for Spinoff series and video game versions of animated films. Celebrities typically do not reprise their roles in these cases, either because the producers cannot afford them, or because they work solely in films.

Compare with SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute, FakeShemp, TheOtherMarty and ObviousStuntDouble. Contrast with YouLookFamiliar. Can be {{Hand Wave}}d by the LiteraryAgentHypothesis. Often subject to ReplacementScrappy-ism. Often done with {{Continuity Reboot}}s. Occasionally explained away with MagicPlasticSurgery. Usually the replacement is a PoorMansSubstitute.

This became a notable phenomenon only with the rise of series television. Prior to TV, there was no expectation that a role in a theater production would be played by the same actor. It was -- and is -- assumed that any production of a particular work would seek out whatever actors it wanted for the roles, and a single production can feature different actors in the same role on successive nights.

# the first shot of the new actor will be accompanied by a short {{narrator}} announcement explaining that "the part of (character) will now be played by (new actor)." This is a more common method in {{telenovela}}s.
